Re: A Conveyor for Christmas

Just amazing !!! I don't suppose you carefully prepared instructions/ guide for those far less talented ? And assuming not would you consider it ?!! Is your motor 240v or stepped down?

Re: Allwin identification please

Ah yes. I take that point. What I was trying to say was that I wondered if perhaps a number of modern restorers were adding pediments when none first existed to 'enhance' ( in their view ) although in many cases just replacing broken or missing original pediments.

Re: Allwin identification please

I have a machine from the 1920s which has a modern very similar pediment added to it though I think it may have had one orginally. I have seen one or two machines with something similar and I guess it may have been fairly common/popular. Many more here more expert who might shed some light.

Re: Lock Lock, who's there..........

Now then. Queen Elizabeth became Queen on the 6th February 1952 immediately on the death of George the 6th.She was not crowned until the 2nd June 1953. So although it says 1952 could it actually mean 1953?!!!!

RIP indeed. One of the funniest and most acute observers of the human condition. One favourite amongst many was 'How Americans see us and how we see them' : a masterpiece.

Re: "An old chestnut", carefully revisited

if you're interested in Bryan machines look at Mel Wright's site. There are a few for sale from one vendor including a nice looking 3ball . I hasten to add the vendor is not me nor I am I connected in anyway ( tho' I do like Bryans )
